My passion is working with families and helping them grow into the best family they can be. However, having a healthy family takes work. But what does a healthy family even look like? I’m here to explore that with you and help your family reach their greatest potential. I’ve spent the last two decades traveling around the world as a military wife raising my family and understand the challenges and stresses related to moves, deployments and reintegration. My background also includes teaching preschool and elementary school and meeting the needs of all children; including gifted, adopted, children with ADD/ADHD, and children on the autism spectrum.

Here in Colorado I received my Master’s degree from Regis University in counseling, specifically as a marriage and family therapist. My work as a therapist includes working with families, couples, individuals and children, who often benefit in counseling through the use of play therapy. Having a healthy family and marriage takes intentionality, but it’s a worthy endeavor. I would be honored to be part of your journey.

Courage works! The body, mind and brain have an astonishing ability to integrate and heal themselves with a gentle nudge in the right direction. This isn’t just a wonderful motto, it is backed by hundreds of years of research. Allow me to partner my therapeutic knowledge with you or a loved one’s unique story to help heal the mind, body and brain.

I have earned a Master’s of Science in Mental Health Counseling, and a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Counselor Education and Supervision. I have dedicated my efforts toward a diverse clientele including adolescents with challenging behaviors, children, struggling couples, families in crisis, and individuals in need of a wide variety of mental health issues.

For active duty, guard/reserve, veterans and retired military members, have you ever thought, “These therapists don’t have any idea what it’s like in the military?” The military population is challenging to many therapists who don’t quite understand the unique and complex culture of the armed forces. As a 20-year veteran of the United States Air Force with multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, I know how it feels. We may have even shared some of the same sand!

Diana Magally Hughes

Diana Magally HughesMy name is Diana Magally Hughes in addition to a passion for mental health counseling, I have taught middle school and high school Spanish for three years. My husband being in the army, I have a newfound passion for military families and supporting spouses, soldiers, and children through all stages of deployment and the stresses and challenges that come with military life. My family is originally from Mexico so I also have an interest in helping families that are struggling with acculturation and the challenges that come with leaving one’s native home and culture. I also welcome members of the LGBTQ community. My goal is to help individuals through the struggles they are currently experiencing in a non-judgmental space that allows for client growth and empowerment.

I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Denver Seminary here in Colorado.

I have partnered with people with needs including trauma and abuse, autism, marital counseling, divorce and separation, Internet addiction, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, Reactive Attachment Disorder, substance abuse, and grief and loss. I have lived and worked cross-culturally and therefore have a special place in my heart for cross-cultural work as well.

Amme Koehler

ammeHello, my name is Amme and I am currently pursuing a Bachelors in Social Work, then will continue with a Masters in Social Work degree program in the near future. I firmly believe that people who experience life challenges deserve to be shown compassion and kindness simply because they are human.

Increasing the wellbeing of all community members through listening, showing empathy, and advocating for their best interest will always be important. Recently, my husband retired from the military and our family settled in the beautiful city of Colorado Springs. After spending my whole life as part of a military family I have come to realize the incredible struggles a military family experiences and would like to share the skills of resilience I have learned with others.

Clinical Staff
Tayeka WilliamsHello and welcome. I applaud you for taking the first step in initiating the process in leading a healthy life; mind, body and spirit. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been passionate about helping others. It is that passion that propelled me into the field of mental health. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am committed to empowering couples, families and individuals to overcome personal obstacles to improve their relationships, promote wholesome living and optimum family functioning.

I hold a master’s degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Brandman University: Chapman University Systems. Trained in a variety of approaches, including; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Theory and Solution Focused Therapy, I tailor each session to meet the specific need(s) of clients. Prior to becoming a therapist, I taught high school Home Economics. I have also worked in the child development centers on Fort Carson, serving military families with children infant through school aged. As a military spouse, I am aware of the intricacies associated with military life; deployments (pre and post), PCSing and extended TDYs. This makes me especially keen on assisting military families in developing and implementing coping mechanisms to overcome challenges as they navigate their day to lives. I believe as individuals we are constantly evolving, and sometimes we do need a bit of help facilitating becoming our best selves. I would be happy to share in the process of your evolution.
